From the Mutable Instruments website:

Anushri is a monophonic synthesizer with an all-analog signal path, paired with a lo-fi digital drum synthesizer. These two sections are controlled by an on-board sequencer/arpeggiator, featuring generative drum pattern sequencing. Anushri is open to the modular world thanks to its analog patching area."

BEHRINGER 2600 Precision Repeatability LABELS

via this auction

"THE 2600 design is amazing and conducive to intuitional creative sound creation.

Free swooping of the VCO and VCF initial frequencies is great fun!

BUT! What about repeatability?
There are no presets, so the legends on the panel become paramount, and this is what's sorely lacking.


Until now:)

I got so tired of this failing, I fashioned some precision labels that are easily affixed to the all 3 of the VCOs, the VCF, and the Voltage Processors, which also just "float" whatever value they're at:)


The spacing is precision, so the slider extremes coincide with "A" and "Z" on the new legends.

You CAN NOW REPEAT where you found that incredible sound :) And share easier!

BELOW: The VCOs, VCF and Voltage Processors with, and without (the boring stock way) this special label set.



Oberheim OB-X8 Ambient Pads

"Some of the first patches I've made (from scratch) to the Oberheim OB-X8, here ambient pads. Added Lexicon PCM80 reverb (8 seconds). A foot pedal is connected to the filter. No other processing. Sorry for some distortion at some places - no limiter was used."

GROOVE SYNTHESIS 3RD WAVE - Interview & Synth Overview

video upload by synth4ever

"Groove Synthesis 3RD WAVE synth interview and overview. In this interview about the 3rd Wave, Bob Coover (Groove Synthesis Founder + DSP) and Andrew Silverman (Embedded Programmer) take us through the 3rd Wave synthesizer, demo some features, and share what's next for the synth and company.

The 3rd Wave is a powerful new digital/analog hybrid wavetable synthesizer from Groove Synthesis which is heavily inspired by the PPG Wave 2.2 and 2.3 synthesizers from the 1980s. The 3rd Wave has 24 voices, 3 oscillators, 2 filters, 4 LFOs and 4 envelopes, a custom wavetable maker, sequencer, arpeggiator, 4-part multitimbrality, dual effects per part, mod matrix, and much more.

During a recent visit to California I had the opportunity to visit Groove Synthesis and interview Bob and Andrew about the 3rd Wave synth. I'm very thankful for their time and appreciate them sharing their knowledge about the synth with us.

To learn more about the 3rd Wave or buy the synth, visit"

Polyphonic aftertouch with Prophet 10 and Xkey - Is PAT really better than monophonic aftertouch?

video upload by Friendly Noise

"The keyboard on the Prophet 10 generates channel (monophonic) aftertouch, but the Prophet can also receive polyphonic aftertouch from an external source. This is what the video is about.

Reading the comments included in the video helps understanding of what’s going on."

Loquelic Vereor complex oscillator plugin demo for VST3, AU, and AAX - Noise Engineering

"Get Loquelic Vereor individually or as part of Bundle 2 which includes Manis Iteritas and Imitor:

Loquelic Vereor is a complex oscillator built around our interpretations of three classic synthesis algorithms (VOSIM, phase modulation, summation synthesis). Like the Loquelic Iteritas module it’s based on, this Swiss army knife of a synth is capable of a range of sounds that are sure to cut through your mix.

Loquelic Vereor opens up incredible sound-design possibilities. Its two oscillators modulate each other for sounds you have never thought possible in a DAW. From outrageous, chaotic sounds to wild drum sounds to drones, basslines, and leads, with Loquelic Vereor, you can have it all.

All Noise Engineering plugins feature an extensive modulation system so you can get your patches moving with LFOs, envelopes, and step sequencers – plus, modulators have adjustable randomization for easy humanization. Plus, loads of presets and a handy randomize button to get you started. More info on the LFO modulation controls:" [posted here]

Rolling Beats with a Sloppy Clock - Stolperbeats and Ableton Live

video upload by Making Sound Machines

"Excited to be part of Modular Day Barcelona tomorrow - a super nice one day modular meet with DIY workshops, lots of great synth makers and concerts. It is hosted by the awesome people of Befaco at their creative makerspace, Hangar, in the middle of Barcelona.

We will be showing our Stolperbeats drum trigger sequencer and as per your request have been recording a little sketch integrating it with Ableton Live, a small modular skiff and some pedals.

#Stolperbeats is seen here sequencing an #Ableton drum rack via MIDI, running the fantastic Extended Sounds Pack by #Modeselektor and Felix Zoepf - they recorded a ton of studio gear from Roland to Jomox machines, and then made some inspired FX patches within Live that are absolutely worth exploring.

Stolperbeats' trigger outs drive our own secret modular drum prototype, with delay from one of our favourite guitar pedals, the Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai. The module in turn receives MIDI from the lovely, super portable OMX27 keyboard by Denki Oto (with backlit linear Cherry keys).

Stolperbeats, roughly translating to "beats tripping over themselves", is our drum trigger sequencer designed to create shuffled beats influenced by the gritty push-and-pull grooves from the golden age of Hiphop. We've always been fascinated by taking our #beats #offgrid to give them more fluidity and life. This module allows you to easily dial in and seamlessly switch between all the shuffle, feeling and groove we would, in the past, painstakingly nudge together in a #DAW.

We have had a couple of days to soak in the city's wonderful art and culture, hanging out at the Museum of Contemporary Art MACBA and the wonderful Miro foundation (Fundacio Miro) to get inspired for our next modular endeavours, and jump back into soldering modules when we're back home!"

"Providing it's retro workflow, evocative sounds, and powerful effects, the JD-800 was a favorite for top electronic music producers through the ’90s and beyond. Still combining the original JD-800 waveforms with advanced modeling techniques, the JD-08 delivers the exquisite hands-on sound design of the original, along with hugely expanded polyphony, a two-part polyphonic sequencer, and many other modern updates. This steal of a sound module is in great shape with no dings or scratches! It includes the original box, owners manual and batteries. (ZM10691)

- Two-part multitimbral with expanded polyphony & four-part structure for tone layering
- Multi-phase time variant envelopes for complex, evolving sounds & palette sliders for quick parameter adjustment

Kawai K3 | New patch bank 2022 | Synthpop, soundtracks, Synthwave - this synth has it all

video upload by Espen Kraft

"The Kawai K3 is an amazing synth. Digital waveforms and analog filters and amps after that.
With its SSM2044 filters, analog chorus, both subtractive AND additive synthesis, this synth can do so much and it has a killer bottom end.
This new patch bank is a complete tone bank, that is 50 new patches (tones) for your K3/K3m. It's in a sysex format. I refer to the manual for how to load these into your synth.
I've included both the individual sysex patches as well as the complete bank. Patch names below.
These patches will NOT work on any other Kawai in the K-series. That includes the K1, K4 and K5000.
You can use the patches as you please, but you cannot sell them as your own, give them away or take credit for making them.
